Bonsai Europa
Bury - 10 & 11 October 2015

A very successful event attended by a great many enthusiasts. Everyone we have spoken to praises Tony Tickle and his team for all the effort that was put into making this a good event.  If I have heard any criticism it is that many would have liked a bigger venue to see more trees; I see that as praise, not criticism.
